Las Vegas dining and nightlife sizzles with the stars
Hollywood stars from every facet of showbiz have spent the past few days enjoying and partying at our Las Vegas restaurants and nightclubs. So many, in fact, that it’s easier to run it down for you broken down into a list of who went where.
Lavo in the Palazzo
It was a Dancing With the Stars reunion for Gilles Marini, his pro partner Cheryl Burke and Sabrina Bryan. They arrived at Lavo after midnight for Stoli cocktails, took photos with fans and danced to salsa, with Cheryl displaying her winning dance floor moves. Victoria’s Secret model Kylie Bisutti celebrated her newfound success by enjoying a quiet early dinner with family, including her mother and husband Mike Bisutti in a party of 10. Kylie looked stunning and turned heads walking in with her high boots and a tube dress. Servers treated her with a special dessert plate with candles that read “Congrats, Kylie!” Kissy-kissy couple Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad and girlfriend Jessica Lowndes of 90210 chose a secluded booth for dinner. Joba Chamberlain of the World Series champion New York Yankees and Torii Hunter of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim were spotted at a VIP table in the nightclub.
Tao in The Venetian
Actress Brooke Shields, who is rarely seen in Las Vegas, was in town for the Consumer Electronics Show. She looked elegant, sexy and beautiful in a black mini-dress during dinner at Tao. Kid Rock dined with friends inside the private dining room before heading up to the new, exclusive, elevated VIP skybox overlooking the moat section and dance floor. Kid drank Jim Beam and Pepsi while enjoying cigars. DJ Vice unsuccessfully egged him on to come to the DJ booth to spin, but the group, which included David Spade and Dana Carvey, got up and danced every time Vice played a Kid Rock song. The PYTs clamoring for Kid had to be content with looking instead of getting close.
The celebs were everywhere you turned in George Maloof’s hotel casino. N9NE Steakhouse guests included Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf with two friends. Andre and Steffi sipped on cocktails but left to get home to the kids by 10:30 p.m. Also there: reality TV star Whitney Port in a party of six; actor and producer David Caruso dined with five friends; rocker Dave Navarro; and actor Danny Masterson, aka DJ Mom Jeans. In the private dining room, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Hines Ward enjoyed dinner with a party of eight and Ketel One cocktails. Other guests included Kid Rock, who dined in a party of 12 with George Maloof; Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban who initially sat in the lounge; and rapper Too Short, who was accompanied by eight people. At the end of dinner, he signed chef Barry Dakake’s famous door. Stanford football star Toby Gerhart dined with four friends. At a nearby table, rapper Xzibit dined with friends. After celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary at Alize, rocker Vince Neil and wife Lia stopped in to see chef Barry and signed his kitchen door.
At Rain, it was wall-to-wall Hollywood Boulevard with Xzibit and Too Short, actor Corey Feldman, comedian Dave Attell, Chicago Bears’ Kevin Payne and Jamar Williams with 10 friends, Seattle Seahawks teammates Sean Locklear and Robert Sims, and Pittsburgh Steelers teammates Hines Ward, James Farrior and Trevor Townsend. This group also hit The Playboy Club to team up with retired NFL player Jamie Sharper, and then they all went onto Moon, where Kid Rock took in the scene as Xzibit rapped and actor Richard Dreyfuss partied with friends. Nearby were adult film stars Alexis Texas and Jenna Haze. Jamar also made his way to The Playboy Club, where he partied at a VIP table with 15 friends, with retired NFL player Jonathan Ogden nearby alongside Dave Navarro with his group. One floor below at Nove Italiano, MMA fighter Kimbo Slice enjoyed dinner with friends on the mezzanine Strip view level and before leaving took photos with chef Geno Bernardi in the kitchen.
XS at Encore
Music star and DJ Jermaine Dupri was at XS, where Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee also dropped in with friends. Former Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Jerome Bettis, San Francisco 49ers standout defender Takeo Spikes and Oakland Raiders linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba also partied with MMA fighter James McSweeney.
